This base will take an hour by the time you leave it stay for ten minutes at the start, knead it and let it sit again for at least half an hour. That means your pizza will be roughly an hour and a half. Order up!
1 cup warm water
7g sachet of yeast
3 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of sugar
Small splash of olive oil
Combine the water, yeast and sugar and leave it sit for ten minutes. Now add everything else and stir with a flat knife. Once combined, knead vigorously. If you need more flour go ahead and add it, if you need more give go ahead and add a tablespoon of water. Knead and then leave to sit for half an hour or more if you can, up to an hour. Now press the dough out, rolling out with a rolling pin. Prick with a fork and set aside whilst you ready your toppings!
Add whatever toppings you are having. I sprinkled garlic and cheese, a little passata sauce, tomato, bacon, red onion, thyme, basil, oregano and mozzarella. Put whatever you feel! Transfer to a wire rack and bake in a 180 degree Celsius oven for about 30 minutes. I cook on a wire rack because my hubby likes a crispy base. If you like it not as crispy, bake on an oven tray. Sprinkle with a little herb and you are done! Ciao!
